Selling...not buying for once! Antiques by the Bay in Alameda, 9/4/11

Sunday, I awoke at the ungodly hour of 3:45, so I could take the rollers out of my hair and leave San Jose by 4:30 to sell vintage clothes at Antiques by the Bay in Alameda.

A few months ago, my good friend Dorian married my "vintage cartel" consignor from the vintage shop I worked at. Mike Middleton is a guy I met at an estate sale (the only other person who would beat me to the clothes at 6AM!) and after talking to him for a while, he agreed to consign at the shop. Now the shop is closed, and he is selling at many flea markets and antique fairs. He really does have some of the best stuff around, as you will see from the photos.

Anywho...last month, and this month, I helped transport a fortune worth of vintage, as well as helped sell with them at Antiques by the Bay in Alameda. I cleaned out my closet and sold a couple of items, as well.

No Matt, they haven't sold yet. You can email Mike or Dorian through my list on facebook to ask price and size.

Great-looking merchandise! I wish there was an antique fair event in the DC area! From the pics of your booth, I bet it was fab!
